Podcast Series Advisory -- Part One: Financial Experts Debunk Pervasive Retirement Planning Myths in Time for Tax Season

NEWARK, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 1, 2007 -- (www.ConsumerTrendReport.com) -- Tax season is here -- and while we are focused on how to save money on this year's returns, we cannot lose sight of how the decisions we make today can affect our retirement plans tomorrow. A group of Prudential Financial (NYSE: PRU) planning experts are launching a two-part audio podcast series aimed at debunking some of the most common retirement planning myths. This first podcast will discuss what to expect from Uncle Sam to how to protect and provide for your family.

POPULAR RETIREMENT PLANNING MYTHS INCLUDE:

-- I should save for my children's education before my own retirement

-- Estate planning is for the wealthy

-- My income taxes will be lower in retirement

These financial fallacies have been plaguing savers for years; they can trip-up people at any age, but should be of special concern to those nearing their golden years. In addition to the podcast, a radio series report will air every week through April 15, featuring Robert Fishbein, a tax attorney with Prudential Financial, along with specialists in social security, estate planning, tax law and life and long-term care insurance.
